Would you rather be 1 of 861,379,000 or 1 of 28,425,507? Marketing is never easy, and today, online marketing is becoming even harder as more and more companies put up websites. The largest number in this headline is the number of English websites in existence. 


Suddenly, you're competing with people ten time zones away.  

There is a way to improve the odds a bit. If, for example, you wish to increase your share of the market in China, you should know that the second number in the headline is the number of websites in Chinese as of this spring. (Source: Wikipedia) Read more...


Thank You,

4 Localization Tips for Savvy Global Businesses


Has your company gone global? Reap the rewards of your success even further by making your company appear local. 

Called "localization" here are some quick tips to help you get found and get people buying your product:
  1. Find a localization agency - Localization agencies will help you understand the market you are trying to reach.
  2. Speak the local lingo - Hire a professional translator to publish your site in multiple languages.
  3. Design for the region - Different designs appear to different cultures. Hire a designer to spruce up your site so that it appeals to specific regions.

Website Translation

Tembua can translate your website into multiple languages! If you're unsure of whether or not this is a relevant tactic for your business, you can test it out. Tembua can translate a summary page of your website into one or more languages.  Clickthrus can help you determine which language is needed most.  As the responses expand, so can the pages and the number of languages you translate.


Here is how we helped one client:


A client came to us after translating her website content using Google Translate. She was very disheartened that the translation wasn't resulting in new business. When we looked into it we found that the translation into Chinese didn't really mean anything - it was basically gibberish - which is why no one was ordering from her. This is why it's important to use professional linguistic services when you localize your website. 


Check out our website summary translations by clicking any of the language tabs on the top of our page:�ol.  We'll gladly  help you decide what languages, what pages would work best for you.
